According to a recent survey, it was found that 80% of workers who quit in the ‘great resignation’ have regrets about leaving their jobs.
According to the new Paychex study, 8 out of 10 professionals who left their jobs have regrets about their decision. Additionally, Gen Z workers look back at their old jobs. CNBC reported the survey reports.
Jeff Williams, vice president of enterprise and HR solutions at Paychex said, “The ‘great resignation’ has led to much regret by employees seeking new opportunities.”
“Among those regrets, employees were most likely to miss their co-workers,” Jeff Williams added.
The recent survey has the following findings:-
- 89% of Gen Zers say they regret quitting. This has even resulted in the decline of their mental health.
- The researchers have also found that 9 in 10 people reported changing industries after they resigned. Additionally, the survey also found that professionals who changed industries were 25% more likely than workers who remained in the same industry to regret their choice.
- 27% of employees said yes and that they’ve already rehired at least one former employee. Forty-three percent said yes, but they have yet to rehire, and 30% said no.
- Returning employees received a 7% raise, but 38% of employers were unwilling to offer new benefits to former employees.
- Nearly a third of employers won’t consider giving people their jobs back, and blue-collar employers are 17% more likely than white-collar employers to feel this way.
- Only about half of respondents said they were satisfied with their mental health (54%) and work-life balance (43%) in their new workplace.
The survey results also depict that the employees have also undergone mental health, work-life balance, and workplace relationship and the chance to get rehired all have suffered. The survey was conducted on 1,179 individuals, including 825 employees and 354 employers from October 10-11.
